A broil element icon.

1. Broil Element

Your oven’s broil element is typically located at the top of your oven cavity and provides high temperatures between 500 to 550 °F. For fast results and full flavor, broiling is best for cooking thin-cut meats, like salmon, steak and chicken, or crisping vegetables and casseroles.

An oven rack icon.

Oven racks are an essential part of any oven and give you the flexibility to adjust for baking, roasting and broiling. Positioning oven racks closer or farther from the heating elements can affect how foods cook and how you use your oven.

Baking elements provide all-over heating and can be found in the top, bottom and sometimes back of the oven cavity.
